GCFC is always looking for new educational institutions to partner with, and this year we are partnering with Trinity High School in Garfield Heights.
We will be hosting a Trinity Junior for the 2017/2018 school year, to help them not only learn about the media production industry and the pathways they might take through it, but also the day to day operation of a nonprofit organization and everything it takes to promote the growth of a new industry in Cleveland.
Katie Couric’s “Cities Rising” series on Yahoo! has put Cleveland back in the spotlight with a series of videos about all the amazing things that make up our city’s comeback story.
The first series of videos covered our improving schools, burgeoning VR scene, and entrepeneurship in the city. This series finishes up with a look at our amazing food, city pride, Lebron James, and of course #FilmInCLE!
Matthew McConaughey was interviewed for the piece while he was in town filming “White Boy Rick,” along with our own GCFC President Ivan Schwarz, about what an amazing city Cleveland is for the arts.

Cleveland, did you catch your beautiful city on “American Ninja Warrior” on NBC Monday night? If you did, you saw not only the daring feats of strength and agility of the Ninjas who took on the most intense obstacle course yet, but also the gorgeously lit landmarks of your hometown!
Whether it was the perfectly lit Terminal Tower, or the Goodyear Blimp shots of our new Public Square, every shot made our city look as special as we know it to be.
We’re proud to have brought this fun experience and spotlight to Cleveland!
Well over 200 people attended our Summer Media Mixer last month, one of our best turnouts ever.
Special thanks to Ricky Volante for speaking about our local Entertainment Law scene, and Music Box Supper Club for hosting us again at their beautiful venue.
These events are part of our workforce development efforts, always working to make sure our local professionals can network and share ideas about growing this industry in Northeast Ohio.
We had an amazing time at Laurelive 2017!
It was such a great event, and as you can see, our GCFC beachballs were a big hit. They even got on stage!
Last month we had the privilege of hosting rising sophomores in the Boys Hope Girls Hope program for a presentation on what GCFC does, and of what all our individual jobs consist.
It was a lot of fun talking about our different journeys to get where we are today, and help illuminate the path that lies ahead of these kids. We really hope we’re able to do it again next year!
